SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Because EPA received significant adverse comment, we are withdrawing the direct final rule for revising the February 26, 2007 mobile source air toxics rule's requirements that specify the benzene control technologies that qualify a refiner to generate early benzene credits, published on March 12, 2008 (73 FR 13132). We stated in that direct final rule that if we received adverse comment by April 11, 2008, the direct final rule would not take effect and we would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We subsequently received significant adverse comment on that direct final rule. We will address those comments in any subsequent final action, which will be based on the parallel proposed rule also published on March 12, 2008 (73 FR 13163). As stated in the direct final rule and the parallel proposed rule, we will not institute a second comment period on this action.
